Faux Leather Leggings and a Cozy Tunic Sweater

I’m starting to get in the mood for fall. Yesterday, I showed you my beautiful new crisscross sweater from Nordstrom. Today, I’m partnering with Nordstrom again to bring you another fab look – these fab faux leather pants and this cozy convertible cowl neck sweater.

The older I get, the more I find comfort matters. I’m not interested in any top that is the slightest bit rough, tight, or scratchy. I want a soft, luxurious feel against my skin, which is why I was instantly attracted to this luxurious looking Sweater.

What I can tell you is this sweater is cozy!  If you were never sure what to wear with faux leather leggings, this knit in a cotton-rich blend, it’s very light and super soft like a little lamb.

I love the way the cowl neck gently drapes at the neckline. It’s so feminine and elegant.

The swingy trapeze shape is modern and fun, and the top is a good length. It’s perfect to wear with skinny jeans and leggings. When you pair a wide top like this over a skinny shape on the bottom and throw on a pair of heels, you have the recipe for a very slimming look.

Do you like my purse?  Nordstrom has a great selection of fall purses, and for this outfit, I  chose the Michael Kors Daniel Bag. I love the pretty plum shade and that rich gold chain. This is actually a crossbody bag, but there’s a bonus.

You can easily convert it into a clutch when you tuck the chain into a pocket at the back of the bag.

Now, let’s not forget the pants. I’m wearing the pebbled leggings. I consider these a fall wardrobe essential. What I especially like is that they’re matte and have a slight texture. They’re not like those black, shiny, biker-type leather leggings that look tough and harsh. These are subtle and classy.

Here’s a look at the whole outfit from the side. See the beautiful shape? I was drawn to this pretty cream color. And there’s another surprise…..

You can wear this sweater off the shoulder too….ooh la la!  A little spandex woven into the top makes it easy. Just pull down the shoulders and arrange the neckline as you like for a partial or full off the shoulder look. This is how I might wear this sweater in the evening if I was going out to dinner.

Here are my favorite shoes! I wore these Kate Spade Open Toe Booties, and I can’t say enough about how much I love them and how comfy they are. That chunky 3″ heel rocks!

Finally, jewelry always elevates an outfit. I love how these pretty gold Kendra Scott Lucca Metal Bangles add texture and make the plum bag pop. They also come in silver, and Nordstrom has many lovely Kendra Scott earrings that complement them.
